  1. Here we go then! Really, really wanted to do one of these for a long time now. This will be my first Russian jet, and ashamedly I’m going to finish it Vietnamese style. This is of course Airfix’s new tooled 1/72 offering and I’ll finish it out of the box using their scheme with some home made mods along the way. With sprues inspected and washed, let’s get on with the tub. Nice and straightforward construction. They’ve moulded belts this time which is new to me, well at least for Airfix. They’ll be ok for 1/72 for me, so no need to make them this time, p
  2. VPAF MiG's, Part 2: MiG-17PF 'Fresco-D' (AZ Model 1:72) MiG-17PF 'Fresco-D', '4721', pilot Lam Van Lich, 921st 'Sao Do' FR, 3. February 1966 'First Nightfighter Kill' MiG-17PF, the uglier (?) radar equipped brother of the legendary MiG-17F. Even with the limited qualities of the radar, it gave VPAF some night fighter capability. Directed to the target area by ground controller and turning the radar on at the last possible moment to surprise the enemy. This tactic was pioneered by Lam Van Lich who took of alone in the evening of february 3rd 1966 to intercept Skyra

  4. Hi All! ZVEZDA (ex-Dragon) MIG in 1/72 My psychiatrist took a drink and left me alone. So I was able to do what I want for a while. Here is the result. Painted Gunze. Enjoy watching!
  5. Here is my Attack 1:144 Shenyang J-5 radar test-bed which I built back in 2014. It represents 2424, of the PLAAF, China, in late 1950s/early 1960s. This aircraft is now an exhibit iat the Changping Air Museum, Beijing. I couldn't find much about this prototype. It seems to have been a test-bed for the radar-equipped J-5A. A source claimed only one was modified this way but I found photos of a second one in another museum. Interestingly, the Russians had made the same configuration tests before settling in the result seen on the MiG-17PF variant. These Chinese tests were complete
  6. VPAF MiG's, Part 1: MiG-17 'Fresco-A' (Zvezda 1:72) Shenyang J-5 (MiG-17 'Fresco-A'), '2310', pilot Pham Ngoc Lan, 921st 'Sao Do' FR, Noi Bai, 3. April 1965 'First Kill' This early Shenyang J-5 (license built MiG-17 'Fresco-A' by the chinese), number 2310, was flown by Pham Ngoc Lan on the 3rd of April 1965 when the first recorded VPAF kill was achieved. This happened over Thanh Hoa province and Pham Ngoc Lan claimed to shot down a F-8E of VF-211 flown by Lt Cdr Spence. But in fact, Crusader was only badly damaged in this incident and Spence made an emergency landi

  9. Goood moorniiing Viee.... Britmodeller! This is my latest build, literally finished just now: Shenyang J-5, Vietnam People's Air Force, 932 Fighter Reg.

  10. At the time of isolation, I started offensive work on making models. I have made three models in the last five days. I present to you one of them. Enjoy.
  11. Hi all Print Scale do attractive decals for Mig-17 without mentioning the exact variant they are destined for. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/PSL72008 Please any recommendations for a Mig-17 kit in 1/72 scale? In particular the Egyptian version? Are there any pics on the internet that will assist? Thanks in anticipation. M.M.
  12. Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-17F 'Fresco' (Shenyang J5) A03091 1:72 Airfix Although outwardly similar to the MiG-15, the MiG-17 was in fact a heavily revised design that drew upon the lessons learned in the development of the USSR's first swept-wing fighter. While the forward fuselage, landing gear and engine were carried across from the MiG-15, the rear fuselage was longer and more tapered. The wing was entirely new as well, being both thinner and more sharply swept. This both raised the maximum speed of the aircraft and aided controllability at transonic spe
  13. Ho ho ho! Three new sets hit our store shelves: First one - for the recent F-Toys MiG-17 featuring external bits such as wing fences, undercarriage doors, IFF probes - nothing out of the ordinary. However - nobody expects: Cameras & Tripods. A small set which may be useful when creating a diorama in our favourite scale. The last bit is our first take on Vickers Valiant. This time we focused on the engine accessories: turned brass jet cans and etched+turned compressor faces. A full size companion PE set will follow in the future.
  14. Like the MiG-15 in 2018 (link), Zvezda is to rebox in 2019 the old Dragon Models 1/72nd Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17 "Fresco" kit - ref.7318 Source: Zvezda catalog 2019 Original Dragon box - ref.2512 - link V.P.
  15. I have been working on this kit for a few months now despite it starting off as a 'quick build'. I would like to strip it all back and rescribe then repaint but I have too many other kits to build and this was not a serious kit, just a fun one.
  16. (just information for all fans of unusual projects...& Soviet aircraft ) Hydroplane MiG-17....now you see all! No, it's not a combat plane, only testbed for hydroski projected big naval supersonic Soviet "America-bomber". It didn’t get to the real plane, so you see only the model photo ... but this model is scary beautiful! I do not know, what is more in it - terrible or beautiful! Therefore, someone must make a good, accurate, high-quality MiG-17 in 72nd scale ....so that someone would make such
  17. Hello everyone! Here is one of several 1:144 MiG-17s I built a few years back (this one in 2014). This is Attack's 1:144 Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-17PFU "Fresco E", Red 15, PVO (Soviet Air Defence Force), Soviet Central Asia, USSR, late 1950s. This was the final Russian MiG-17 variant, armed with air-to-air missiles. This option also came in Mark I Model's re-issue of the kit. Since the decals were much better in the latter, I used them from here instead of those from the Attack kit. The PFU was a modification of the PF variant and since there were no new-build machines I decide

  19. Hi All, This was a quickie build after I received the kit completely FREE courtesy of the very generous Mr Canberra Fan! It's the Trumpeter kit with some Eduard PE and the quite marvellous Cutting Edge cockpit set. (boy I miss Cutting Edge!) It's done as an Egyptian Air Force jet from the 1967 War. Brush painted in Gunze Sangyo Mr Metal Color of various shades. I think the decals were from Eagle Strike. As always, pictures courtesy of Farnborough IPMS website. Al
